The Fairy Story
“Faerie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold...The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords. In that realm a man may, perhaps, count himself fortunate to have wandered, but its very richness and strangeness tie the tongue of a traveller who would report them. And while he is there it is dangerous for him to ask too many questions, lest the gates should be shut and the keys be lost.”
J. R. Tolkin

The character of fairy is hidden in many tales, and by many names. The word fairy after all is a new invention, not for a species of being but for a category of mystical beings. The fairy story by necessity then is obscure, so to understand one a person must read and compair many.

Just as Jacob Grimm points out Puss in 'Puss and Boots' represents a fairy the fox in this story does as well.
